I've been playing with Alchemy again a bit lately, again, mostly because it's so fast for me to make stuff with that I half-like.
If you're thinking of playing with it too, the version of Alchemy that I'm using is this one: [link]
, which has an UNDO ability, as well as a ZOOM, both of which can be handy. Though slightly less powerful in what it can do, if you want to take a quick test run of the program without a download, there's now a web-based version as well, that can also be run on your smartphone, apparently: [link]
Check out this video to see it in action: [link]
And if you are thinking of downloading Alchemy, feel free to download and use my new custom shapes pdf: [link]
Just download it, make/ name a new folder to put it in, and drop that folder into the Alchemy "Shapes" folder, and you should be able to find it in the program's Pull Shapes drop-down list. It's my first real go at making shapes for the program, so it's got its problems, but it essentially works alright enough.
All-in-all, once you find some settings you like, I find Alchemy to be a fun, quick and really easy-going program with which one can pull out some new ideas and creativity.
Down the pipeline of uploads, I imagine I'll throw in a few new Alchemy paintovers as well. I've been trying to make myself do non-Alchemy-based stuff, but simply haven't found the energy to do so lately... I'm supposed to finish a painting for charity sometime soon (read: two weeks ago), but that's going way slow. :/ I suck.
In other news, I HAVE been playing some Planetside 2 lately. I'm ozwalled, on the Waterson server (East Coast), and play for the red team (Terran Republic/ TR), so if you happen to have a computer that can run it and would like to play sometime, send me an in-game message, and if I happen to be online, we can squad up or something and shoot some people together.
